4 Ways to Cook with Honey


Honey is more than a sweetener in a jar, hiding in your pantry. On this episode of Smidgen, host Anne Milneck—chef and owner of Red Stick Spice Company—gives us four delicious ways to add honey to our cooking. This episode is to help celebrate pollinator week, a celebration of the buzzing beneficials that help flowers bloom and food grow. (Be sure to follow Red Stick Spice Company on Facebook and Instagram so you can see how Anne is honoring pollinators this week!)

What ways can honey be used in cooking?

- Try a honey simple syrup for cocktails or mocktails for an elegant spin on your favorite sips. Recipe: https://blog.redstickspice.com/recipe/honey-simple-syrup/

- Do you like sweet with spice? Try Nashville Hot Honey, a great drizzle or dipping sauce; perfect for chicken. Made with Red Stick Spice Co’s Nashville Hot Chicken Blend. Oooh, honey!

- Finish your meal with Honey Espresso Sugar Cookies. Listed with no further explanation needed.
